This is a unique cable-driven water skiing park that my son tried twice during our recent vacation. It's mostly used by locals, but is open to anyone and they treated us fine, so I'd like to review it. It's a good spot for active teens and older kids who want to do things rather than sightsee.

After 4 days of Cairns rain, we decided to have a go at this. Quick video brief, kitted up, & straight onto the knee board, & then dragged head first into the water. It's an awesome time - rain or sunny day. I should've paid...More

This is a fun activity for all the family and the kids are quicker to pick up the skills than adults. The only thing which would make this attraction better is a 'pickup service' for those people who fall off midway round the circuit. It's...More

Fun day, great for learning to cable ski. Probably need shuttle bus for beginners who keep falling off. Big walk back. They also need to put some tables and chairs near launch pad as on concrete slab isn't ideal for people to sit
